I'll also point out that any measure that you use ("money-losing", "poor attendance") also condemns every Canadian city in the last 20 years with the exception of Toronto and Montreal. Would the NHL look better if teams losing money and having poor attendance were all shipped south en masse, leaving only 2 Canadian cities?

EDIT- Did you SERIOUSLY say Saskatoon?
And how many ticket sales are from Canadian snowbirds, how many were given away, and how many are just dirt cheap.

It's the price of tickets that are more important, not how many butts are in the seat.
